    Great Dr. Very caring and does not waste time. Was very urgent about taking care of my situation to prevent it from getting worse. She made sure I understood everything in detail. Has a very kind and humble spirit. Her staff reflected the same attitude and patience. 3 weeks after the 1st procedure I needed another surgery. Walked into the hospital so scared and ended up laughing the majority of the time until the happy juice kicked in. Definitely one of a kind dr. and staff.

    Marvelous surgeon. Took care of my double hernia with no delay. Completely healed in almost no time with no residual pain and a rapidly disappearing surgical scar. I'm so glad I had it done. Dr. Baerman also repaired my wife's umbilical hernia a couple of years earlier also with excellent results. Dr. Baerman is also a wonderful person, personable, friendly and thoroughly committed to your best care. She listens to you and responds to your concerns.
